Served in my Lindemans flute. Pours very murkey and muddy orangy-red with a tightly bubbled creamy pinkish head. You can smell the tartness and acidity of the cherries. Very nice. Some yeastiness. Absolutly spectacular flavor. Sweet up front. Tart at the end. Slight drying affect. Full luscious body. Lively carbonation. I bet I could get in a lot of knickers with this beer.

I was lucky enough to get a bottle of this and a bottle of the Raspberry Tart from a relative living near Wisconsin. This is the 3rd Christmas in a row I have received some of this and could not be happier. Shared this bottle with the family on Christmas day and it was a big hit.

The Belgian Red pours a very nice bright red color with a nice pink head that disapated rather quickly. The fresh cherry smell is evident once you pour. There is some nice champagne bubbling and noise going on which I like. The smell in the Belgian Red appears to be more natural than some of the more popular lambics that are out there. I really enjoy this one.

What a nice tart cherry taste with this. I could not get enough of this taste and the aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. The best part of this particular experience was giving 3 or 4 relatives the chance of trying this beer that they had never had before but now love. Too bad we are too far from Wisconsin to get this often. Thank god I have about 5 bottles of this and the Raspberry cellared away.
